A new study reveals older adults can generate just as many new hippocampal neurons from progentior cells as young people. The findings confirm neurogenesis does occur in older individuals.
Although observed in other species, researchers report hippocampal neurogenesis does not persist through adult life in humans. Researchers say human hippocampal neurogenesis is not detectable in the adult brain.
Researchers have implicated mossy cells in both seizures and memory problems in those with temporal lobe epilepsy.
Researchers report a drug used to slow cognitive decline in Alzheimer's disease may help to reverse memory and learning problems in teens who binge drink.
Researchers use virtual reality to discover how the brain assembles contextual memories.
A new study reports there is no evidence that gadolinium contrast material, commonly used for MRI scans, contributes to cognitive decline.
UNC researchers have identified a brain circuit that runs from near the front of the brain to the hippocampus that helps to control neurogenesis.
